The IRISreader library provides functionality to read IRIS level 2 data by the IRIS satellite and to process it for big data applications. IRISreader works best with a Jupyter notebook.
If you came here to look for something that provides a good python replacement for IDL code and is well-integrated into SunPy, have a look at IRISpy.
IRISreader is currently under heavy development and not yet available in a stable version. Documentation is available but might not reflect the newest additions.
To install the latest stable release from pypi, run
pip install irisreader
To install the current development version, clone the repository
git clone https://github.com/i4Ds/IRISreader.git
sudo python3 setup.py install
to install the library.
To test it go to the Python console, cd to the IRISreader directory and run:
from irisreader.data import sample_sji sji_data = sample_sji() sji_data.plot(0)
The documentation is available here.
